The software was originally written in FoxPro and went through several migrations to run on a Microsoft SQL Server database. In the summer of 2015 Aptean launched Made2Manage 7.5 which runs completely on Microsoft .NET technology, with Microsoft SQL Reporting Services running its reporting engine. The Microsoft .NET customization tools make it easier to customize Made2Manage to specific business needs.
